Slow-Cooked Green Chili Beef Burritos Recipe

This recipe gets rave reviews every time I make it. The shredded beef has a luscious, slow-cooked flavor that you can’t get anywhere else.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Cook: 9 hours YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (3 pounds)
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) beef broth
  • 2 cups green enchilada sauce
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1/2 cup Mexican-style hot tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 flour tortillas (12 inches)
  • Optional toppings: shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream


  • 1. Cut roast in half and place in a 3-qt. slow cooker. Add broth. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours or until meat is tender. Remove beef. When cool enough to handle, shred meat with two forks. Skim fat from cooking liquid; reserve 1/2 cup cooking juices.
  • 2. Return shredded beef and reserved liquid to the slow cooker. Stir in the enchilada sauce, green chilies, tomato sauce, salt, garlic powder and pepper. Cover and cook on low for 1 hour or until heated through. Spoon beef mixture down the center of tortillas; add toppings of your choice. Roll up. Yield: 12 servings.
